Re: A new phrase for your lexicon!

Though it is years since I have tried N gauge, I have to admit that the price seems reasonable and the method described to convert to DCC is not beyond the average modellers capability, and gives a better reliability then using DCC sockets and blanking plugs which are known to give the occasional is...

Interesting Sightings.

A couple of years ago I happened to be passing and called in on some people I know who live in a little Welsh town called Kidwelly. Kidwelly has two rivers, the Gwendraeth Fach and the Gwendraeth Fawr, the larger being the Fawr (Hence its name) flows right through the centre of the small town and al...
